The Raelert-Brothers start with confidence into the new year

The two brothers look motivated towards 2017 – Andreas Raelert has already begun with his training – World Championships in Kona and Chattanooga are main goals

Rostock. With great confidence, Andreas and Michael Raelert are looking forward to the new season. "2016 was a year with some highs for us, but as well with some depths," the Raelert-Brothers say at the end of a season in which they had to overcome health challenges. "We took the hurdles and they are behind us," the two brothers say. "We are on a good path for a positive new year of competition."

After participating at the Ironman 70.3 Middle East Championship, Michael Raelert spent a few days of vacation in the middle of December. He took some days off to recover before starting into the first training sessions for 2017, while his brother Andreas already completed a first important training block in Lanzarote in December. "It was good to put in the first miles and as well to face some nice and sunny days of training," says Andreas Raelert. The Raelert-Brothers spent the Christmas holidays with their family in Germany, and they will head into a training camp in January together.

"In 2016, our wishes were not fulfilled," the two brothers say, looking forward to a successful new year of racing. "We are ready," Andreas and Michael Raelert say. The 2017 focus for Andreas Raelert is clearly on a successful return to the Ironman Hawaii, he is willing to fight for the dream of a victory in Kailua-Kona. Michael Raelert also plans to participate in the Ironman World Championship, and he would like to compete at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in September, too. "We look forward to working together with our partners to bring up a successful new year", the Raelert-Brothers say. They are really looking forward to a new year including many highlights.
